When I've finished with college I think I'd greatly enjoy travelling the world. However, I don't think I'd greatly enjoy getting beaten/stabbed/my kidneys stolen/shot/killed. With UG being filled with members from numerous countries, I was hoping people could tell me what the general attitude to English people is where they live, and whether it's actually worth visiting there regardless of the locals.

Of course, places like Iraq aren't going to be on my visit list within the foreseeable future.

I'd particularly like to visit the countries in Europe, Asia and South America.

Can't have an Englishman thread without a gent.

Well, here in Plainfield, IL, are a bunch of hicks. If you hide your accent you may make some friends. You're better off in Chicago, though. It's a really nice place to have dinner and stuff. Plus, Oprah lives there. If you're lucky, you may get cash.

There aren't many dangerous places like what you speak of, unless you are in a big big city like Toronto, but even then it's not that bad.

I'm sure Hackney followed by Dagenham would be an interesting little holiday. ESPECIALLY if you're dressed up like a true gent, looking nice and rich.

Yup. I can't really think of many places that would be any more dangerous for an Englishman than they would be for anyone else. I'd also love to travel at some point: lots of europe, new zealand, australia, tebet, all of north america, probably other places too.

Good luck rob

Your nationality/culture shouldn't stop you from going wherever you wanna go. If you really give a shite you should hide your accent.

There is one place you shouldn't go though, Wales, not because they hate the English, just because its a shithole.

Twelve. One to change the bulb and eleven to say they could do it better.

robbie, if you are english as you say you are, then you will probably know that many english people go to spain for their package vacations. If you come to Barcelona in summer, you would blend in just fine.

Come to America, the English are worshipped as gods here.

EDIT- Oh yeah, don't go to the shitty parts of New York. (the city that is)

And China would be okay to go to, if you don't lose your passport while you're there or anything.

It's really alright here in SF. If you aren't scared by the prospect of people who might be gay, it's a great place to live. Many people are very nice.

you live in the southside?

as an english guy it's easy to get chicks here, even if you are ugly (which you definitely are ) because chicks are goo goo ga ga over that accent and crap. go to NYC, chicago, las vegas, san francisco.

Yep, Millennium Park is nice. The huge bean is OK. It's a huge waste of money to be honest though. Good for pictures, though. The Sears Tower is quite a site, too. To be on the top is cool. You have like a bunch of sites to visit there.

Well my mom is English and she hasn't been attacked or beaten up, lived here for 25 years, so I'm sure you could come to Western Canada...

EDIT: If you were to come to Calgary in the summer then you could go to the Calgary Stampede (starts second Friday of July and goes for 10 days. Huge outdoor fair thing with a well known rodeo)

I'm from the North East of England, so I don't have the refined English accent foreigners have come to expect. I could always pretend though, if it gets me some action.

You'll have to put on a different accent then, or they won't be able to understand you in America
